Continuity mistake: When Michael first comes home after becoming a vampire he gets some milk out of the refrigerator and when he collapses the whole top of the carton busts open but when his mom comes home and picks it up only one side of the carton is open. (00:37:45 - 00:45:40)

The Lost Boys mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the beginning of the movie where the flying vampires are chasing the security guard across the boardwalk parking lot, the positions of his arms as he is running changes back and forth between shots. In the close-ups of the guard's face, his hands are up, holding his hat down on his head. In the wide shots, his arms are down at his side. (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film we see that Michael has a transparent reflection in a mirror because he is a half vampire. Yet, earlier in the film when the other vampires, who are full vampires, are in the video store, their reflections can be clearly seen in a glass counter. (00:12:10)

Question: Star tells Michael that she was supposed to be his first kill. I'm only speculating that it was on David's orders so, if he was, why did David change his mind and decide to make Michael a vampire instead?

Answer: Because the Head vampire, Max, had fallen in love with Michael's mom. At the end of the movie he said, "Boys need a mother and if I could get Michael and Sam into the family, you would have no choice but to join us."
